Shopping for Faux Flowers

I love faux flowers! I know a lot of people don't but I just think they are a great substitution for flowers when the weather is cold. Here in Indiana, it's hard finding certain flowers. But Hobby Lobby has made it easy to have beautiful flowers until the weather gets warm!

I went a few weekends ago to get some new floral pieces to "refresh" my bouquets at home and work. The selection was so grand! I had such a hard time narrowing down which flowers I wanted. But I purchased a few and will be back for more. See below what I bought and how I placed them. 

Gorgeous aren't they!

So many to choose from.

The stargazer lilly. My absolute favorite!!

These would be great fillers.

Faux kale bushes... yes please!!

I loved these!! I will be going back for them!

I purchased these for my nightstand. I am not sure what they are.

I purchased a second bush for my reading area.

This is my big floral arrangement in my sitting room. I put some long green vines in it. 
I think it makes the arrangement look lush!

Another bouquet in my sitting room

This is a bouquet at work. I love it! It looks so grand on my desk!

As always thanks for reading!

  1. I must say I love faux flowers as well. I have two faux orchid arrangements that have a rubber like texture. Most guest think they are real. Last week I went to Michael' s Craft Store to look for faux hydrangeas, but I didn't like the inventory. I have three large round vases that I purchased from Pottery Barn years ago that I am looking to add an arrangement in with acrylic water. I may have to make a trip to my local Hobby Lobby.

    1. Oh yes, and send photos of whatever you find!! I love to see what other states have!!!
